The year 2018 marked the 75th anniversary of the founding of Mathematics of Computation, one of the four primary research journals published by the American Mathematical Society and the oldest research journal devoted to computational mathematics. To celebrate this milestone, the symposium "Celebrating 75 Years of Mathematics of Computation" was held from November 1-3, 2018, at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM), Providence, Rhode Island.

The sixteen papers in this volume, written by the symposium speakers and editors of the journal, include both survey articles and new contributions.

On the discrete side, there are four papers covering topics in computational number theory and computational algebra. On the continuous side, there are twelve papers covering topics in machine learning, high dimensional approximations, nonlocal and fractional elliptic problems, gradient flows, hyperbolic conservation laws, Maxwell's equations, Stokes's equations, a posteriori error estimation, and iterative methods. Together they provide a snapshot of significant achievements in the past quarter century in computational mathematics and also in important current trends.
